Notes

Mexico. Introduced into North and Central America. Cultivated for its fruits. Its intoduction into Spain was not a commercial success, but the species became naturalized in any case. Some authors distinguish two species (P. philadelphica and P. ixocarpa), but it seems that their origin, and the history of their introduction and naturalization is the same. Also in Russia
